A thoughtful and personal exploration of games

Custom Chimera


This weekend I sucked it up regarding the rubberbanding I experience and hopped back into Star Trek Online.

Immediately I felt a little overwhelmed. Although they’ve released new content for the game in recent months, I just didn’t have much interest in it. When I had stopped playing last year, I had a side project I was working toward. Namely, I was going to use the Chimera-class Heavy Destroyer to mess around a bit with a new concept. See, I recall hearing about how some people didn’t know what to do with the Chimera because it comes with a built in beam attack but as an escort people were using cannons. My idea is to slap on both the Nukara Strikeforce set and the Nukara Appropriated Munitions set and run a bunch of refracting tetryon beams and have a ricocheting beam boat.

I came up with the idea back in August and it’s just stuck with me, nagging me as a possible thing, but ever far away because of the sheer volume of Nukara marks I’d have to gather up. Thanks to the current event and it providing a choice of marks allowing me to get 40 or so every now and again, I can make a dent in it.

I’m not sure what else my Chimera will run though. I don’t know if I’ll be using any torpedoes (in addition to the web mines). Maybe I’ll horse around with some stuff on a website somewhere.

Anyway, that’s what’s been bouncing around in my head today and I’m going to be thinking about it more.

Until next time!
